Abbotsford Storm U16 win Surrey SX Cup

U16’s win all four games to earn gold at South Surrey event

The Abbotsford Storm U16 Division One boys team ended the year off on a high point at the SX Surrey Spring Cup in South Surrey last weekend.

The Storm took home gold by winning all four of its games en route to the title.

Abbotsford beat the Surrey United Soccer Club Red Devils 1-0 to open the tournament on Saturday, and then followed that up with a 5-0 win over the Coquitlam Metro-Ford Eagles later that day.

The wins continued on Sunday, as the Storm downed again beat the Eagles 4-1 and then clinched gold with a 3-2 win over the Red Devils.

Abbotsford’s Max Park led the offensive charge with four goals in the tournament, with Thomas Janzen and Alex Ksinan both adding two. Others who scored at the event included: Woody Russenberger, Jamie Klassen, Zach Dyck and Leo Haladin. Team officials also praised the play of goalkeeper Riley Richardson, who allowed just three goals in the four games.

The win at the spring event was preceded by another gold in the SX Surrey Fall Cup in the fall, as well as pair of golds and one silver in three other local tournaments.
